Italian Potato and Sausage Soup
1 lb Italian sausage (either hot or mild) 1 onion, diced 3 cloves garlic, minced 6 medium red potatoes—scrubbed, halved, and sliced thin 4 cups chicken broth 1-1/2 cups milk 2 cups water 1 tsp red pepper flakes 1 tsp thyme 1 cup heavy cream 2 cups kale—deveined and chopped 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated Salt and pepper to taste
In a deep pot over medium-high heat, brown the sausage, breaking it into small pieces with a wooden spoon as it cooks.Once cooked through, drain any excess fat, then set aside.
In the same pot set over medium heat, cook the onion and garlic for 3-5 minutes or until softened.Then add the potatoes, chicken broth, milk, water, red pepper flakes, and thyme.Simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 10-15 minutes.
Return the sausage to the pot and add the heavy cream and kale.Cook for an addition 3 minutes, then remove from heat and season with salt and pepper.
